WOW.. I can't believe January is nearly over.. February starts tomorrow.. the year is already way to fast for me.. I only have a couple more weeks of being on the Ippity Dt... boy you get used to something so fast when you have been doing it for nearly 6 months. I am still having such a great time playing along with these Fabulous ladies.. I am going to miss this!!
Today I am hosting the new challenge on the Ippity Blog.. so make sure you go and check it all out. If you have been playing since the beginning of January you will know that we are doing the first week with a sketch. I made this sketch keeping it clean and simple. hope you all like it.

Here is the card I made. Using some of these great Cosmo Cricket papers Circa 1934 and some Ippity stamps from the set How you doin' and the little Ippity logo butterfly. Make sure you check out the Ippity Blog on Thursday for the How to Thursday I am going to show you how to make these fabulous Ippity Brads.

Blom Family Project Life Tuesdays..Jan. 2011

I got my photo's printed on Saturday so this is in my album now.. yippee.. love getting photo's printed, and only minutes to wait at Walmart.

So this is January 10th -16th

As usual I wanted to add more photo's of certian days so taking some file tags from my scrapbooking supplies I tabbed them and added them behind the photo of that day.
I also did some journaling either on the photo or on the back of the photo.. here are the added photo's with the file tabs.

and the double page

Here is last week
January 17th - 23rd

I took every one's advice and did a collage for all the photo's I took on the Monday.

the double page layout.

I am also doing the 52 week project photo challenge on facebook.. it is a group you can join.. this weeks challenge was to take a photo of your morning.. so I made these tags to represent the photo.

This morning it was watching Regis and Kelly.. Regis announced he is retiring after 25 years, I have been watching him for such a long time.. but he is 79. I also start my routine starting up my computer to check email and have breakfast.

I also want to use some of my stamps in my project so here for my coffee photo I stamped this image on the journaling card.. I like the personal look of it .. I think I will be inking up more often for this project.

Here's to another week of photo's.. I am still loving it..
have a wonderful day

H{ippity} Hop.. This is...

H{ippity} HOP..
Welcome Monday.. best day to sit back and enjoy all the Ippity Creations from the Ippity blog..
love Monday's!!
Have any of you been thinking Valentines day.. Well did you know you can use some of these wonderful Ippity stamps to make some Valentine Day Ticket Tags.. well yesterday I was inspired by a card my dear friend Savannah O'Gywnn made HERE. I just loved the way she used the tickets from the Ippity kit Here and Now.. and I just had to ink them up.
I want to get ahead on Creating some cute fun Valentines tags.. so using this ticket is just perfect.

I added the heart stamp from the Ippity set How You Doin' and the" for you" sentiment from the Ippity set Totally Happy. I was thinking that this was also something the kids can read on their own.. I find most of the Valentines the kids in Kindergarten can't read so this was just perfect .. They are learning these words in class.. " this is.. for you" love it!!

I also used some heart brads to embellish. {Eva..} I got my seam binding and made some ribbons to match.. I am going to be addicted to this stuff!!

For this weeks Challenge it is to use brads.. so this all came together perfectly. Now you can use just one of the challenges, all of the challenge or mix them up whatever way you like.. it is so much fun.. so many ways to challenge yourself. Make sure you upload them to the Ippity SCS forum thread HERE

Now it time to check out what the Beautiful and Talented Eva has for us today!!

Have the most enjoyable day!

Project Life.. tuesday

Well I am going to get my photo's printed every 2 weeks.. so here are my photo's for this week.
I am not sure about you all , but I am having a hard time taking more than one photo a day.. Crazy... just Crazy. Maybe it is that there are so many things I want to capture, but some days I will just have to include more on a photo's in the larger journaling card. Either way I am having fun. I guess there are no rules so I am just going for it.
Here is my week January 10th-16th
January 10
Picking Sydney up from school, this is my shadow.. see I am tall..hehe.. today was a day of alot of walking outside.. soaking up the sun.. it was cold but so beautiful and fresh.

January 11
Today I started a new blog about making ART projects. Sydney and I had a fun filled day making tutorials and projects together.. side by side we created from our
he{ART} and Soul. That is what we are calling this new blog.

that evening Sydney went out to play with daddy in the snow.. she started shoveling the lawn..only because daddy had his new toy out doing the driveway.

January 12
Lunch Love Notes.. when it is Sydney's day to stay for lunch she loves the notes I send with her sandwich. just a reminder of how much she is loved. The teacher tells me she carries it around all afternoon and takes a peek once in awhile..they make her so happy.

January 12th
Silly bands.. it is shaped elastic bands.. she got a ton of them for Christmas and has a special case she puts them in.. not wearing them to school.. but enjoying them when she gets home.

January 13
Home this morning , Roger brought home the movie Alpha and Omega home for Sydney to watch.. but she requested he give up going to bed this morning to watch it with her.. so, some Daddy and Daughter time was had. The couch will hold 3 people but daddy is way more cozy!

January 13th
Herb Roasted Chicken.. we got the recipe from the Pioneer Woman's Blog.. it was devine.. Alex ate half the bird it was that good.

January 14
Starting today with a healthy breakfast. I saw this recipe posted on my friend Lisa Shaw's blog and had to make some.. I used cranberries,vanillia and a little maple syrup and it was so yummy.. wish I had the toasted Almonds.. got to go get some for next time.

The snow is here.. the kids are having fun playing outdoors, shoveling the lawn and getting the icicles off the front porch.

Hippity Hop .. challenge 3 of 4

H{ippity} Hop Monday
It is here and we have the third part of the January Challenge.
Maria picked this beautiful Inspiration photo. Here is the card I made using it's details.

I just love all these stamps from the Ippity sets, Gurnsey Gingham,Dots for Sure, Delightful Little Things, and A Moment In Time.

Using the bedding, curtians , and blanket for inspiration I came up with this card. I also used the sketch from Last weeks Hip Hop.. but changed up one of the squares for the sentiment.

Here is a closer look at the inspiration Photo.

Now it is time to check out the Wonderful Eva..
remember to start at the Ippity Blog and use the button to travel through to all the DT blogs.. it will take you back to the Ippity Blog where we have a list of today's participants.
Hooray for H{ippity} Hop Monday's.

Have the most wonderful day,

Cosmo Cricket January Challenge.

Cosmo Cricket has a challenge on their Blog.. it is all about January.
This makes me happy only because with doing my photo's for 365 I will be able to scrap some of the ones I am taking.. and I am taking so many.
So using some of the papers from the Mitten Weather collection I decided to do something I don't usually do.. and that is to use shades of purples. This collection has some great papers in this colour to use so I just had to.
Here is my layout
Sweater Weather

Using the chipboard shapes, the sticker shapes and some 6x6 papers.

I also decided to do my journaling on the paper as well.. and I must say I love the look of it on patterned paper. So that is something else that is new for me.. I am going to keep on challenging myself. I love how all the shades of purple worked so well together.

Have a great Sunday!
